Singer-songwriter Lissie Maurus, who was born and raised in Rock Island, Ill., next to the Mississippi River, is known for her soulful, blues-infused Americana songs. The nature-loving, solitude-seeking Midwesterner began writing music in high school after picking up the guitar and quickly began performing in various coffee shops and open mics.

Now residing in California, her Why You Runnin' EP introduced listeners to Lissie's ability to write with emotion, reflection and maturity. Her full-length debut, Catching A Tiger, is no different. Though she shifts between upbeat spirited tunes to soft-spoken country, fringes of '60s soul and subtle pop smarts, her characteristically sweet and rustic voice seamlessly threads each track together.
